  • OUR MC

    Kris Bernard

    Kris Bernard has called Stratford home for over a decade. She studied Broadcast Journalism at Mohawk College and then proceeded to thrive in her field which allowed her to create lasting relationships and develop her skills in communication. Passionate about people and the stories they have to tell, Kris found her move to Stratford's tight knit community to be a natural fit.

    With the encouragement of her family and friends, Kris accepted a position with the Stratford Festival where she now oversees the Front of House Department and works along side a group of passionate individuals who work tirelessly to create an exceptional experience for each and every guest that walk through their doors. In her free time Kris loves to see shows with her husband Jeremy along with their two sons Luke and Joe.

    If all the world's a stage Kris is so grateful to be cast along side so many talented "players". She only hopes that the part she plays will help ensure people's stories will be heard through theatre and the arts for generations to come.
